Memories of Dear Friends

Today is the 13th anniversary of the deaths of two dear friends. My mother-in-law Ethel & dear friend Beth died within 15 minutes of each other. I received so many blessings from these two women. Ethel gave me a deep love for nature, plants & birds in particular.  With Beth I had the privilege of knowing her family & being part of it. With the pledge to take care of each other’s children should anything happen to either of us, I was given the joy of helping to raise her children when she passed away. Upon marrying Dan Buchko years later I was truly blessed to be given 4 wonderful stepchildren. Although I would love to have them both back in my life, I am grateful for their influences on me & for many wonderful memories. I am also looking forward to the day we meet again in Heaven!
